Assuming you are searchng in Bloomingdale proper with only 18 active rental listings there are no single family homes available at that price range. There are 10 condos, one single detached family home at $1900 and the rest are townhomes or quads. No Rent to Own.
You may have better luck on craigslist in finding a rent to own. If you decide to go that route I recommend you find a good real estate attorney since the contracts for that type of option are heavily biased towards the landlord and most people end up losing the down payment credit and rental credits due to the strict contract language.
Have you tried getting pre-approved for a mortgage? If you have not tried you may want to find out where exactly you stand in regards to your current financial situation when it comes to obtaining a mortgage loan.
Feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss your current situation. I can recommend a trusted mortgage professional to give you the advice you may need to better plan your housing choices.... more
